Tales of the Lost
As is the case in most major cities, City Hall is the political seat of power in Las Vegas – at least mortal, everyday politics. At the head of City Hall is Mayor Oscar Goodwin, who has been in power for over 20 years.
Situated downtown, near the Fremont Street Experience, with its main entrance on Stewart Avenue. It is cited as an example of 1960s modernist architecture. The original eleven-story central tower was completed in 1973. An addition was completed in 2003 which included a three story surround to the central tower. The addition includes additional office space, a parking deck, and a sky bridge to connect the parking deck to the structure.
In 2010, construction for a new city hall building began at a different site. When it is expected to open in 2012, the city government will relocate there, leaving the original building to either be reused by a different tenant or demolished for a possible new development.
